General Dentistry: Checkups, TMJ Treatment, and More
We are glad to work with young patients to help establish excellent dental health habits that can benefit them for the rest of their lives. We strive to make the dentist's office a fun experience, and treat our pediatric patients with the same respect, courtesy, and warmth we offer our adult patients.
Gum disease affects nearly three-quarters of the adult population. Many believe that their gums are in perfect health and fail to receive the treatment they need. If your gums are red, swollen, or quick to bleed, we urge you to contact us immediately so that we can restore the health of your gums.
Because of the relationship between oral and general health, our doctors emphasize a holistic approach to dentistry that focuses on how a healthy smile can contribute to overall health. Treatments incorporate non-toxic materials, low-radiation x-rays, and education about healthy dietary choices.
TMJ Disorder Therapy
When the temporomandibular joints (TMJs) become strained or inflamed, the TMJs can be a source of chronic pain not only in the jaw, but also in other areas of the body. Possible solutions include mouthguard or splint therapy, orthodontic treatment, prescribed exercises, and lifestyle changes.
Comprehensive Dental Exam
We provide thorough biannual dental exams to help you maintain your oral health. During your initial examination, we will review your dental and medical history, examine your mouth, head, and neck for signs of potential problems, analyze your bite, and make treatment recommendations as necessary.
Oral Cancer Screening
We use advanced technology to provide oral cancer screenings. The VELscope® system is a highly sophisticated piece of machinery that operates on a simple principle: when exposed to the VELscope® light, healthy tissue will glow green while irregular tissue remains dark.
